Status and ecology:

This moth normally occurs sparingly at mv light. It is seen sometimes fairly commonly in both vice-counties and is occasionally common when disturbed during the daytime at Lewes. It is widespread but declining in central districts yet, although local in numbers, it is considered to be remain well established elsewhere. This is a double-brooded species, flying mainly from the second week of May until the second week of June, and again from the third week of July until late September. The larval foodplant has not been confirmed in Sussex, but it is associated with St. John's-wort in other areas. (Pratt, 2011)
